London chef and restaurateur José Pizarro’s infectious enthusiasm for Spanish cooking permeates every page of his new book Seasonal Spanish Food (2012 Kyle Books). His message couldn’t be simpler — use fresh, seasonal ingredients and they will speak for themselves. Season by season, Pizarro explores his favourite ingredients from different Spanish regions. He details the culture and history behind the ingredients, and with his exceptional dishes, shows how to use them best. Host a Spanish-themed dinner party with potato and egg tortillas, a warm Catalan spinach salad (pictured above) and salt cod.
